VOLUME I: INDEX to California Highways and Public Works 1937-1967 Compiled by: Jill Hupp, Environmental Program, Cultural Studies Office Sacramento, CA JUN-1997 PUBLICATION HISTORY : California Highways and Public Works (CHPW) was the official journal of the Department of Public Works (Caltransâ predecessor agency) from 1912 to 1967. The history of its publication is almost as involved as the California Highway System itself. Five issues of the journal, then called California Highway Bulletin, were published by the California Highway Commission and the Department of Engineering between 1912 and 1916. After a lapse in publication from 1916 to 1923 the journal, now renamed California Highways, was issued monthly through August, 1927 and bi-monthly for September-October, 1927. In November, 1927 the Department of Public Works took over publication and renamed the journal California Highways and Public Works. Under the Department of Public Works, the journal was issued intermittently monthly or bi-monthly through December, 1934 then on a regular monthly basis beginning in January, 1935 to February, 1943. Regular bi-monthly publication began in March-April, 1943 and continued until the final issue: January-February, 1967.
